Hi lybrate-user, your thyroid levels are slightly high it should be around 2.5 when trying to get pregnant. Diet won't help that much in hypothyroidism, you can try for gluten free diet. Ideally you should have thyroid medicine it will be corrected in a month don't worry it's not major issues. Don't stop talking medicine without consulting doctor.

Hello, Though sex was during fertile period, but as it was protected, so chances of pregnancy are minimal. However, you may get a serum beta hcg test done to conclusively rule out pregnancy.

I do sex mostly without protection is there any disease that occur what should i do?

hi Neha, ideally you should go for delinking surgery before IVf to increase chances of conception. hydrosalpinx contains bad fluid which prevents Implantation. as you are having endometrosis chances of implantation will be less as compared to non endometrosis endometrium. if you have already started IVF cycle you can freeze embryos and after delinking plan embryo transfer.

This medication is a female hormone (estrogen). It is used by women to help reduce symptoms of menopause (such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness). These symptoms are caused by the body making less estrogen. If you are using this medication to treat symptoms only in and around the vagina, products applied directly inside the vagina should be considered before medications that are taken by mouth, absorbed through the skin, or injected. This medication may also be used by women who are not able to produce enough estrogen (for example, due to hypogonadism, primary ovarian failure) and by men to treat prostate cancer.

8 weeks pregnancy with only intrauterine gestational sac seen and no fetal node or yolk sac or cardiac activity, will not progress further and an abortion through medicines or surgery is the only answer. Sometimes, there is delayed conception or a case of wrong dates, in that case one may wait for a couple of weeks before any further action. If on repeat usg after 10 to 14 days, things are the same, then you should go for abortion.

U can do a test at home using pregnancy kit. Which is available with all chemists easily. Use the first urine sample that you pass in morning for the test. The test tells whether you are pregnant or not.

Your doctor is doing best to retain this pregnancy. Heart beat is visible from 6-8 weeks. Rising levels of hcg hormone in blood would have been helpful but giving her injection hcg is more important. In normal cases, where no hcg injections are given, viability of pregnancy is assessed by measuring hcg hormone levels in blood. Good luck. Have faith.

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

One of the unique forms of depression is the Seasonal affective disorder which is characterized by the onset of depression with the start of the winter months and a full remission during spring time. Seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression that affects about 1 in 20 people around the world on average. One of the common therapies used to treat this disorder is light therapy.

What is light therapy?

Light therapy is the controlled exposure to specific amounts of bright light on a daily basis as a medicinal tool to correct depression and other mental disorders. It has been noticed that the lack of exposure to lights may trigger certain mental disorders within patients and controlled exposure to bright light over a stipulated period of time every day may be able to correct this effectively.

How it works?

Brightness within the daily world is usually measured with the unit of lux. For all types of artificial lights, the measure of luminosity is estimated via this unit. Human beings have an automatic trigger where low light levels for continued periods may cause depression. A clear sunny day outdoors will have a measurement of 10,000 lux and this is the recommended dosage for exposure for people suffering from depression.

It has been seen in studies that people with severe forms of Seasonal Affective disorder responded well to this therapy. They were treated 30 minutes daily with light exposure and over time the study showed that it significantly improved the moods of the people.

Some of the reasons why light therapy proves to be an effective treatment option for SAD include:

It resets the circadian rhythm - Controlled exposure to light will trigger the hormones that control the circadian rhythms or the daily rhythms of sleeping and walking cycles and thus will help reduce depression.

It triggers neurotransmitter function - Light exposure triggers certain neurotransmitter functions which work like an antidepressant and thus relieves stress or other internal functions that may cause depression.

Results in an increase in serotonin levels - This hormone is very important for mood elevation and is known to rise with increased light levels and decrease with low light levels. Controlled exposure can definitely help improve serotonin levels for lessening depression symptoms.
